1. Okuma Avenger ABF Graphite Bait Feeder Reel
The Okuma spinning reel is a result of a decade of research and development. It is a unique combination of tournament grade spinning reel and Okuma's patented live line bait feeding system. The Avenger "ABF" series definitely diverges from the traditional reel by boasting ultra smooth, precision crafted reels. The light-weight CNC machined spools are engineered with super smooth oil-soaked felt washers. The reel features six sealed ball bearings, for smooth operation. The Avenger ABF uses Okuma's live bait feeding system. The easy-to-reach lever disengages the spool to allow the line to run freely. The tension of the free spool is adjustable, and the bait feeding system allows a fish to pick up the bait and run without feeling the drag of the reel. When you are ready to set the hook, just flip down the bait feeder lever to engage the drag, and the conventional front drag takes over.
